Wrestling Match With God?

20 May

We are as fragile as this flower before God.

For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)–[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.   Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you.  1 Peter 5: 5b-6

Sometimes we wrestle with God because we’re afraid what might happen if we obey Him.  Sometimes we must make Him chuckle.  When we humbly submit to His will in our lives, He gives us grace.  When we pridefully stick to our guns, He opposes us.

In any wrestling match with God, who do we think will win?
